Queen and Adam Lambert have announced a live album.

'Queen + Adam Live Around the World' will arrive on CD, CD and DVD, CD and Blu-ray and vinyl on October 2 through EMI Records. The release will serve as a great consolation for those who were due to see the band and vocalist live this summer. Queen and Lambert were forced to reschedule the UK and European leg of The Rhapsody Tour to 2021 due to COVID-19. Guitarist Brian May said:

“As we all grapple with the challenge of creating live shows in a world dominated by a formidable viral enemy, it seemed the perfect time for us to create a collection of hand-picked live highlights from our Queen shows over the last 7 years with our brother Adam Lambert.  

“It’s a first! As you watch and listen to these tracks you’ll be journeying all around the world with us, and experiencing a complete virtual live set.  The collection climaxes in Sydney earlier this year when, in support Fire Fight Australia, we recreated the complete Queen Live Aid set. It was a historic event for a great cause - with perhaps the highest adrenaline level since the original Live Aid in 1985.  It makes me particularly happy that we can now share this unique moment with the whole world.”

“We hadn’t really watched those clips before, we were always too busy touring” added drummer Roger Taylor. “We weren’t aware of how good the band sounded. So we thought, well, maybe there’s a live album of highlights of concerts that we’ve done over the last eight years with Adam Lambert to be made.”

The release features footage of the band performing at Lisbon's Rock in Rio, Isle of Wight Festival, Japan's Summer Sonic, UK and North American tour dates, and their full 22-minute set from the Fire Fight Australia benefit show, where they performed Queen’s 1985 Live Aid set in full. 

“When we couldn’t tour this year we wanted to give the fans something in place of that, and a Live album just felt right," said Lambert. "It’s the first time we have released an album together and we have had a lot of fun putting it together, picking out favourite performances over the past seven years."
